Please Funko, Make This Eleven Figure From Stranger Things Real!

1

In an effort to get the attention of Stranger Things creators Matt and Ross Duffer, Funko tweeted a mockup on Tuesday of one of the more popular characters, Eleven, a little girl of few words and impressive powers.

The Pop Vinyl figure of Eleven (played by Millie Bobby Brown) features her super-short hair, bloody nose from using her psychic powers, and her borrowed pink dress and blue jacket. She’s even holding her favorite food: Eggo waffles.

Fingers crossed that Netflix and the Duffer Brothers take note and release the full cast of characters from Stranger Things as Funko Pop! figures. Will Byers could even be upside down.

The Lost Boys Series Heads To The CW

1

The CW is making some long-range plans with Veronica Mars and iZombie creator Rob Thomas. The network is developing a Lost Boys series, based on the 1987 feature film directed by Joel Schumacher. Unlike the film, however, the Lost Boys series is planned to span the better part of a century. The first season will take place in San Francisco in 1967 with the plan being for each subsequent season to be set in a different decade, culminating in a final seventh season that will, by the time it airs, theoretically feature the characters in a contemporary 2020s setting.

The Lost Boys series will be executive produced by Thomas through his Spondoolie Productions. Other executive producers include Dan Etheridge and Danielle Stokdyk as well as Gulfstream Television’s Bill Bindley and Mike Karz. Gulfstream’s Juliana Janes will oversee for Warner Bros. Television.

Plans for the Lost Boys series arrive just as The CW prepares to begin the final season of their hit vampire series The Vampire Diaries. The eighth season will premiere on the channel October 21 with the first of 16 final episodes.

Marvel’s Runaways Headed To Hulu

1

Marvel Television will be bringing the fan-favorite and ground breaking comic book series, “Runaways,” to popular streaming service, Hulu.

Every teenager thinks their parents are evil. What if you found out they actually were?  Marvel’s Runaways is the story of six diverse teenagers who can barely stand each other but who must unite against a common foe – their parents.

“We’ve known the Runaways’ story would make great television,” said Jeph Loeb, EP and Head of Marvel Television, “and being lucky enough to have Josh and Stephanie — who have time and again created shows that speak so genuinely to this exact audience — write and produce the series is nothing short of remarkable.”

“I’m a long-time fan of Runaways and couldn’t be more excited to bring Brian and Adrian’s characters to life,” said Schwartz.

Adds Savage, “Josh and I can’t wait to get to work for Marvel and Hulu.”

Marvel’s Runaways is Executive Produced by series Co-Showrunners/writers Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage (“The O.C.”, “Gossip Girl”) along with Marvel’s Head of Television, Jeph Loeb (“Marvel’s Jessica Jones,” “Marvel’s Luke Cage”) and Jim Chory (“Marvel’s Daredevil,” “Marvel’s Jessica Jones.”) Fake Empire’s Lisa Rowinski will produce as well.   Marvel’s Runaways is a co-production with ABC Signature Studios.

Marvel’s Runaways for Hulu is based on the comic created by the award-winning team of Brian K. Vaughan and Adrian Alphona.
